NTEGRA Spectra: AFM/Confocal Raman and Fluorescence/SNOM/TERS from NT-MDT

NT-MDT’s NTEGRA Spectra integrates the complete power of confocal Raman and fluorescence microscopy, scanning near-field optical microscopy, and atomic force microscopy in a single instrument. Owing to Tip Enhances Raman Scattering, the NTEGRA Spectra helps in performing spectroscopy and microscopy with up to 10 nm resolution.

The NTEGRA Spectra supports most of the existing AFM modes, offering full information concerning physical properties of the sample with nanometer-scale resolution. Simultaneously with AFM, Raman and confocal fluorescence measurements offer information concerning sample’s crystal structure and its orientation, chemical composition, macromolecular conformation, presence of impurities and defects etc.

Equipped with new electronics and software, the NTEGRA Spectra integrates the novel HybriD Mode™ for nanomechanical proprieties as well as Raman for chemical imaging of precisely the same area within a single measurement session.
